Year Round Adult Book Clubs
- Books Sandwiched In
This book club is sponsored by the Bellmore Memorial Library and moderated by a librarian. Please check the “Events and Programs” page for meeting dates. Please feel free to bring a bagged lunch! Copies of the upcoming selections are available at the Circulation Desk.
- Between the Lines
Held on the first Thursday of each month at 7pm, this book club is sponsored by the Bellmore Memorial Library and moderated by a librarian. Copies of upcoming selections are available at the Circulation Desk.
- Your own Book Club
Register your own book club at the Reference Desk. When you pick the book your group is going to read next, let us know and we will interloan as many copies as you need. Your members can come in and check out their copy, which will be marked due the day after your discussion. Librarians can help you collect information to make your discussion more informative. And, if you are at a loss for what to read next, we can help you pick a title. You might want to read one of the titles that you can borrow as a Book Club in a Bag.
Book Club in a Bag
We supply the books; you supply the people!
Each bag contains 10 copies of a title, discussion information, and a book sign-up sheet to help the leader keep track of the books–everything you need to help you run your own book discussion group.
Whether you’ve always wanted to start a BOOK CLUB, but just didn’t know how, or your existing book discussion group is looking for an easier way to select books, the Library’s “BOOK CLUB IN A BAG” may be just what you need.
Here are some titles we have on hand. Many other titles are available through the Nassau Library System. Click here for a complete list of available titles. And don’t forget there are Graphic Novels available for book discussions as well!
